Newark Mayor Booker talked about the “pragmatic center,” which probably is a strong hint about how he would run for Senate.
Booker called the gun control debate a “convenient trick to try to divide our country more.” According to Booker, 74 percent of NRA members “agree that nobody in America should be able to buy a gun without doing a background check.” Booker believes the country isn’t as polarized on the issue as it may appear. He went on to say, “Let’s stop the false debate.”
He noted there were problems that needed to be corrected, including “secondary markets” for guns. He also backed increased legislation, such as correcting the fact that terrorist on the “no-fly” list can currently buy guns.
